A group of arms dealer led by disgruntled RS 1 designer Kurt, and abetted by the drugged and mesmerized Hong Kong police detective Edison, steal the lethal robot in order to terrorize the city.

Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

The film was produced by Regent Entertainment and Media Asia Films.[1] As one reviewer described the origin of this version of the sequel to Gen-X Cops,

Metal Mayhem is the Americanized version of a Hong Kong film called Gen-Y Cops (sequel to the aptly named smash hit Gen-X Cops). It's unclear how the "Jackie Chan presents" label was justified, since he doesn't appear to have anything to do with the film. However, the label is an effective way to let American audiences know up front what kind of movie they're getting themselves into.[1]

Release[edit]

Jackie Chan Presents: Metal Mayhem premiered as a Sci Fi Pictures original telefilm on the Sci Fi Channel on February 23, 2002.[1]
